What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is an opportunity for apprentices to receive a national recognised qualification while learning on the job, normally with a trade industry like construction. While working, they will spend 20% of their working hours completing classroom-based learning through TAFE or a training provider.

What is a traineeship?

Traineeships are on the job training while studying hands-on practical learning over academic theory. It can be full time or part time and they receive mentoring by a supervisor and the ability to complete coursework during work hours.

What is VET?

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is learning targeted practical skills normally while still at school. These skills are directing connected to a career pathway which allows students to apply them to further education and training.
